Since 2001 The Trinity Session has been concerned with the logics of art-making in complex, social situations; where the dynamics of context, site, available resources, and creative solutions converge to create unique artistic challenges and opportunities. As global practicing artists, born and bred in Johannesburg, the politics of change in South Africa have motivated and inspired Stephen Hobbs and Marcus Neustetter to create partnerships and unique moments of collective practice in order to respond to and create new directions. Having worked in many countries abroad, Johannesburg has always served as a catalytic reference point for how to think beyond the often-elitist structures of the art world, with a view to cultural production found in the public domain. To this extent The Trinity Session has co-produced numerous multi-disciplinary projects and events around the country and on the continent, with the objective of bringing knowledge back home.
The Trinity Session team hosts a range of facilities, programs and networks evolving out of 20 years of intensive investment in various aspects of cultural production in South Africa. In Addition, while its core focus is on South Africa/ Africa with a thriving socially engaged public art practice, demonstrated in projects such as #ArtMyJozi, it also operates a successful workshop and production space, in Maboneng, close to the city centre developing a range of bespoke collaborative artworks, most notably, production and curation for The Leonardo in Sandton Central.
And since the beginning of 2020, Stephen Hobbs and Marcus Neustetter have been setting up bases in Ireland and Austria.
